“Man of Steel 2” director Zack Snyder remains tight-lipped on the upcoming film’s production but he continues to defend the decision to cast “Argo” actor Ben Affleck as Batman. The film director discussed about the right casting choice for Batman in the Comic Book Therapy report as well as the influence for the “Man of Steel” film sequel.
“Ben brings an interesting counterweight to the performance of Henry [Cavill] in the role of Superman. He has the experience necessary to paint the picture of an older and more advised man than Clark Kent, who bears the scars of a seasoned vigilante while retaining the charm that Bruce Wayne deploys when present in the world,” explained Mr Snyder in the report that got translated from the French magazine Popcorn.
The director further confirmed that the comic “The Dark Knight Returns” is an influence to the “Man of Steel 2” film but it will not be a continuation of the story. The Enstars report notes that the comic features the aged black-caped superhero coming out of retirement and facing off his former ally Superman.
